Pours just short of opaque. Nose is woody. Flavor is whoa! Nice and hearty. Woody character. Thick robustness that is nowhere near overdone. Slight bitter back tone. Feel is thick enough on the liquid. Has a good level of carbonation. Very drinkable. A good brown ale. If you see it, go for it.

Draft-Nodding Head Center City Philadelphia. Dark Brown ale, came highly recommended but not a big fan. It does have a slight chocolate/earthy flavor but overall nothing overwhelming and not enjoyable to me when it was serviced lukewarm. Its still better than Monkey Knife fight...

Draft. I must be the only one in the metro area of philly that did not like the beer from this place. For a brown ale, it lacked some serious flavor. There was little in the way of toastiness, chocolate or espresso flavors that most brown ales possess.

Tap @ Nodding Head. Poured a clear very dark brown color with an off-white head. The aroma was roasty with coffee notes mixed in. The flavor matched the aroma with the but this time the coffee showed dominant . The flavor was sweeter than the aroma. The finish was light and semi-dry. The roast stays throughout the finish.
